During November, the month of remembrance, we take time to pray for those who have died and give thanks for loved ones who have made a deep and lasting impression on our lives.
Over the years, CAFOD has been blessed to work alongside the kindest and most committed friends any charity could hope for. The insight, faith and strength of our founders and early supporters still shape our values and way of working today.
But one of the saddest aspects of growing older, as individuals and as an organisation, is that some of our closest friends have passed away in recent months and years. In our own diocese we have lost a number of friends who have played an inspirational and important role in our work.
So in celebration of our inspiring friends, and as a small token of our appreciation for their years of kindness and dedication, CAFOD Hallam will be holding its Memorial Mass at St Theresa’s, Prince of Wales Rd, Sheffield this Sunday November 23rd at 11am
All are welcome to join us, whether to remember fellow CAFOD supporters or members of your own family, friends and community who’ve passed away. At our memorial Mass you can take precious time to remember your loved ones, knowing that you’re among friends.
Here in the CAFOD Hallam office we hold a book of remembrance of all those who have been part of our CAFOD family and are now, sadly departed; this book of remembrance will be present on the sanctuary at Sunday’s Mass.
Refreshments will be provided after the service, so we hope you’ll be able to stay on for a while to speak with other local CAFOD supporters and staff. It would be wonderful to see you at such a special event.
